A taste of vacation from the road

I'm trying my hand at blogging from the road, so bear with me here.  This trip is centered on the Gulf coast in Texas and Louisiana.  Most of our nights have been spent camping on the beach, like our spot below on Bryan Beach.  

We had this beach all to ourselves for the most part.  The Gulf is a wonderful white noise machine.

Another aspect of this trip is the wonder of being here during spring migration.  Birds (and birders) are EVERYWHERE!  We found some very nice photographic subjects, like this tri-colored heron, at Leonabelle Turnbull Birdding Center in Port Aransas, TX.  

And we are just now heading out from New Orleans, where we visited St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, which holds the reputed tomb of voodoo queen Marie Laveau, and had a seriously good muffuletta sandwich.  It's basically an Italian sub with a big slathering of olive salad.

Obviously, we wrote a "New Orleans exception" into our diet!
